    Google Translate

    Platform: Android

    Price: Free

    Google's latest update to its Translate app on Android lets you translate text from a picture. All you do is take the photo and then brush the text you want translated with your finger.

    Google Translate is also available for iOS, but without the new photo function.

    JB Hi-Fi Now

    Platform:  iOS (iPhone), Android, Windows Phone 7

    Price: Free

    JB Hi-Fi Now is a music-streaming service, which has now made its way to Windows Phone. The app has offline synchronisation, meaning that you can throw a few albums onto your mobile device and take it with you on a flight, for example.

    Platform: Android, iOS (iPhone and iPad)

    Price: AU$0.99

    If you need a file-sync-and-share cloud that you can control, you can connect devices to a private ownCloud server running in your datacentre. It seems as though there are still a few bugs to work out in the app, but the idea is sound.
